In a series of Instagram posts on Monday morning, September 12, Aquino has revealed that she's set to do a project with APT Entertainment, Inc., the producer of GMA-7 shows 'Eat Bulaga' and 'Sunday PinaSaya.'

For several weeks, Aquino's final decision whether she will stay or move to Kapuso network became headlines on various entertainment blogs and websites.

No definite show for Kris on ABS-CBN

On her first post, she narrated what has happened after her vacation in Hawaii and the supposed renewal of contract with ABS-CBN.

"We were set to renew our contract February 2016, it was a generous, less demanding agreement but at that time there was a threat to my life we needed to take seriously, I had to regain my health, and I needed time for my family & me.

"We didn't sign then, I went to Hawaii, came back to campaign, then left again.

"Our agreement was we'd talk when I got back. That is the risk of taking time for yourself- when you come back there's no guarantee that a space will be held for you.

"We spoke in July but there was no definite show & no assured time frame of my return on air. I perfectly understood- as much as I wanted to believe I was a pillar of the network, everybody is dispensable.

"And I say that with no bitterness- just HONESTY.

"So to all of you saying please don't leave- it wasn't a choice that was just mine to make. I take my share of the responsibility. And I say that w/ so much gratitude in my heart."

Part 1: I want to tell you our truth & I pray you'll understand... 20 years ago, I went back to ABS CBN after a year w/ GMA (Star Talk & a Viva produced afternoon talk show). It started w/ Today w/ Kris Aquino & ended w/ Kris Tv. We had a memorable, excellent run. ABS saw me through my worst & my best. I had the chance to be part of career defining shows like TWKA, The Buzz, Game KNB, Deal or No Deal, PGT etc & had iconic movies like Feng Shui & Sukob. We were set to renew our contract February 2016, it was a generous, less demanding agreement but at that time there was a threat to my life we needed to take seriously, I had to regain my health, and I needed time for my family & me. We didn't sign then, I went to Hawaii, came back to campaign, then left again. Our agreement was we'd talk when I got back. That is the risk of taking time for yourself- when you come back there's no guarantee that a space will be held for you. We spoke in July but there was no definite show & no assured time frame of my return on air. I perfectly understood- as much as I wanted to believe I was a pillar of the network, everybody is dispensable. And I say that with no bitterness- just HONESTY. So to all of you saying please don't leave- it wasn't a choice that was just mine to make. I take my share of the responsibility. And I say that w/ so much gratitude in my heart. ❤️

'TAMANG PANAHON' for Kris Aquino

On her behalf, Aquino's talent manager Boy Abunda has reached out Mr. Tony Tuviera for her television projects under APT, the co-producer of her 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry 'My Little Bossings.'

"Our plan was initially just a digital initiative- I know you miss my #foodtrips & my #cooking #recipes #roadtrips & #travel... But maybe my guardian angel in heaven (could it have been you, Mom?) was working overtime & what was an attempt at something new & experimental, evolved into a vision & a presentation that felt perfect for who I am now & for our TV collaboration.

"Mr. T actually remembered coming to our home in Times Street in 1986 to meet my Mom to produce a show for me when I was 15 years old. 30 years after- dumating na ang TAMANG PANAHON."

Kris Aquino: "You deserved the true story and I gave you my truth"

Aquino gave a shout out of THANK YOU to ABS-CBN and to her new "family" APT Entertainment.

"You deserved the true story & I gave you my truth, so that we may all move forward... So here's a shoutout of THANK YOU to the Kapamilya Network ABS-CBN for all that was, and here's a shoutout of THANK YOU to my new APT family for all that will be.

"And most of all my THANK YOU to all of you for allowing me to just be me."

Aquino said she will have a very busy schedule for the next months and will tape for the new show on September 22.

"My sons & I leave today for a little over a week- advanced making up on my part because I have an exceptionally full work calendar until Christmas. They had so much of me for 4 months- so we'll be adjusting..."

Part 3: My sons & I leave today for a little over a week- advanced making up on my part because I have an exceptionally full work calendar until Christmas. They had so much of me for 4 months- so we'll be adjusting... When we come back, the unit I'm renting from Tito Manolo & Tita Maritess Lopez in Rockwell will be ready (I believe that is proof enough that there is no bad blood between the owners of my former network & me.) This is the 1st & last I shall say about this chapter of my life. You deserved the true story & I gave you my truth, so that we may all move forward... So here's a shoutout of THANK YOU to the Kapamilya Network ABS-CBN for all that was, and here's a shoutout of THANK YOU to my new APT family for all that will be. And most of all my THANK YOU to all of you for allowing me to just be me. ❤️
